Stage, music and art

The Felsenbühne Rathen - Europe's most beautiful natural theater - is located in the Bastei area just below the hotel. But it is not the only thing the region has to offer artistically.

At the "Sandstone and Music" festival, classical music and sandstone merge.

The Richard Wagner sites in Graupa today not only accommodate the oldest Wagner museum in the world, but are also a regular venue for music and readings.

Monuments , museums and more

A variety of sacred architectural monuments decorate Saxon and Bohemian Switzerland. And the great Saxon organ tradition is also cultivated here.

Of course the museums of the region can not be forgotten. The theme spectrum ranges from regional history, nature conservation through everyday life in the GDR to the animal and plant world of prehistoric times.
